    Hi there, My S54 is due for an oil change and I'm also about to replace my leaking valve cover gasket and was wondering if anyone had thoughts on the order of those two procedures. Any harm in doing the VCG replacement while there is no oil in the engine? I'm wondering if removing the valve...

    I have recently been battling my oil consumption issues and whilst on a long drive I pulled over and hastily checked the oil without letting it all drain into the pan. Assuming it had been burnt away, I added oil and went on my way. This was near the end of the drive, so I've only gone around 15...

    After 300 km of driving (Occasionally hard) I sent my oil to Blackstone labs and got the following result back. As you can see the lead is in 20 PPM only after 300km. Would like to hear your comments from anyone with experience. Should I drive the car? Or should I park it? PS -The...

I own a 2004 325i and am having some trouble trying to figure out what's happening to my oil. On startup, I have no oil light and my level is...

    Can anyone recommend which viscosity to put on 170k mileage 320cd diesel. Which one would be better in terms off better protection on engine and turbo at this mileage. Can I still go with 5w30 or better 5w40, I heard that on this kind of mileage the 5w40 is better as it will create a thicker...

    High-rotational NA engines such as the e46 m3 engine and e92 m3 engine have a pure engine oil viscosity of 10W-60. It's probably an engine that was made to use 10W-60 in the past, but is it okay to use 0W-40 points of oil if you use high-performance engine oil today? I wonder if I don't have...

    Hello, yesterday I did a much needed service. I changed the oil from 5w30 to Mobile 1 5w40, oil filter, cabin air filter, spark plugs and air filter. After the change a strange ticking noise started coming from the engine. I think it is coming from lifters but I am not sure. Also my old spark...

    Hello guys, I'm a brand new owner of a 2003 330i, and I couldn't be more excited about it. Overall, the car is mechanically sound with a few cosmetic issues from some less competent previous owners. 1. The third brake light (the light bar on the inside) is hanging down on one side giving it a...

    Hello fellow BMW fans! First time post. Long time reader. I have an issue with my oil service indicator on my 2006 e90. 6 months ago I had an oil change at an Indy shop (euro car and BMW specialized) and they reset the oil service indicator, but it would only reset to zero(0) miles, not the...
